Maxwell Colette Gallery is pleased to present EQUILÍBRIO, a two-person exhibition featuring new paintings from Brazilian artists Rodrigo Level and Gabriel Kieling. The show is co-curated by Holiday Exploits, who will be releasing prints by the artists in conjunction with the exhibition.
Level and Kieling exemplify a new breed of Brazilian artist who are able to move freely between the disparate worlds of the gallery and the streets without losing credibility in either. Beyond this, the two are united by more than just medium and technique. Themes of harmony, balance, tranquility and sensuality are explored by both artists. The work is a reaction to the urban chaos that defines life in contemporary Sao Paulo, a metropolis currently rocked by waves of social and political upheaval. Both artists believe that their connection to Art is a profound one. Says Level: “Art…is everything around you. We live art daily. Everything comes from artistic creation.”
